A Breakthrough in Stem Cell Technology

Embryonic stem cells generally are established from pre-implantation embryos made up of dozens of cells called blastocysts.  But HKU scientists have managed to capture stem cells from embryos much earlier in the development process. Moreover, they have achieved this for multiple animal species such as mice, humans and pigs. The research opens up wide new avenues for science investigation, translational medicine and biotechnology.
